I do not consider Jon Stewart to be a satirist.  He lets reality make fun of itself.
 
2013-08-29 08:45:26 AM
2 things:

1. This is the most accurate video they have ever done.

2. I learned the term "pegging" from them. So thank you Onion. Thank you very much for that.

With how bizarre reality has gotten I am honestly shocked they can even satire anything anymore. Hell during the whole GOP rape fiasco really they didn't even need to make shiat up, just report the actual news.

I agree. It's much easier to just point and say "isn't that crazy?!?" with a funny face when reading a news story instead of coming up with some original humor about it.

Agree. Stewart has less talent than a mongoloid.

I can always laugh at the mongoloid.

I read the first half of the headline and clicked, then read the NPR headline.  For a moment I honestly thought I was going to read about the New York Post.

The Onion has done a great job of embracing digital news -- I think I discovered them through a PC Magazine feature circa 1994, before I even had Internet access -- and transitioning from a weekly newspaper to a 24/7 media organization. But at times I really miss rushing to the news rack every Wednesday morning to grab a print copy before they're all gone.

The newspaper from my area is superior to the newspaper in your area.

Most local rags have at least 1 page devoted to satire news and they're all terrible. The Onion has been the only source of fake news to consistently make me laugh.

I discovered "The Onion" during the Bush/Gore/Florida "Recount" crisis, when they showed foreign troops landing in D.C. in an effort to stabilize our government.  This was at work, and other cubicle dwellers started 'prairie dogging' when I laughed the way I did.

i always referred to that as "crowning." as in, "dude, pull the car over, i'm crowning here! i've got to be dilated to at least three centimeters already!"

FlashHarry: very first onion headline i saw, back in madison in about 1990: AREA COCKROACH farkING HUGE


one of the first i remember was the area zookeeper attacked raped by bear
 
2013-08-29 10:04:07 AM
One of their very best, yet oddly deleted from their website. From 1996:


-- Black Bear Attacks, Rapes, Zookeeper Grin and bear it! Barry, an 850 lb. black bear, got a little frisky with zookeeper Ron Gilks. The anal rape is believed to be the first inter-special coupling in Metro Zoo history. Here's a little dog-bites-man tale we couldn't resist! Except replace "dog" with "850-pound black bear"! And "bites" with "anally violate"! Yes, last Saturday a zookeeper at the Metropolitan Zoo had "claws" for alarm when he was attacked and raped by the same black bear he had raised from a cub! Geez, talk about gratitude! "It was horrible, just horrible," sobbed an eyewitness. Guess she sure got an eyeful! The bear, named "Barry," attacked zookeeper Ron Gilks as Gilks entered the cage to give him dinner. Barry lunged at his throat, goring him with his huge claws and razor-sharp teeth. Some of the claw marks were three-quarters of an inch deep. Ouch! Then, astonished onlookers could "bearly" believe what happened next--Barry began to brutally rape zookeeper Gilks! Frantic zookeepers rushed for rifles as others tried to divert the bear. But there was no stopping Barry! This bear kept "bearing down," and Gilks just had to grin and "bear" it! Maybe Barry was mistaking him for his "honey"! Gilks was pronounced dead upon arrival at the hospital. A full quart of bear semen was extracted from his ruptured chest cavity. And that's no small Boo-Boo! Barry's 27-inch phallus, armed with guard hairs as sharp as red-hot needles, shot through Gilks' rectum, shattered his lower spine and skewered his colon, causing his entire lower torso to "cave" in! Yikes! Bet that wasn't the type of "cave" you had in mind when you took up zookeeping, Mr. Gilks! And can you imagine Gilks' surprise when Barry's putrid ursine semen flooded his ruptured chest cavity? (By the way, Mr. Gilks, whatever cologne you've been wearing, where can the public get some?) Finally, zookeeper Eric Pulliam shot Barry with a tranquilizer gun and pulled Gilks from the cage. The unconscious bear was later destroyed. Hey, this "Yogi" made a major "Boo-Boo"! "I have worked with dangerous animals before," zoo director Kate Donegal said. "But never have I seen any animal sexually assault a human being." "Barry"? Try "Scary"! Meanwhile, Gilks was pronounced dead at an area hospital--but at least he died grinning and bearing it! No doubt, this episode gives new meaning to the term, "Do not feed the bears!"
